to realize that this is our katrina. >> the obama administration responded to complaints that fema was late on the scene and anountsed that the deputy administrator will be there tomorrow and fema wants everyone who needs assistance to call. when there's complaintcomplaint because they haven't been able to reach out. 1- 800-621-fema or disast disasterassistance.gov. >>> president obama was back on the trail. >> in new jersey yesterday and saw the devastation and you really get a sense of how difficult this is going to be for a lot of people. but you know, we've been inspired these past few days. because when disaster strikes, we see america at its best. the consumer in these times all seem to melt away. there are no democrats or republicans during the storm. just fellow americans. >> his response to the storm has earned him big praise. 78% approve of how he's dealt with the hurricane. images and headlines like this have helped, too, featuring chris christie of new jersey on a bipartisan storm damage tour together from wednesday. but not everyone's a fan of the federal agencies that handle
from the corps of engineers a special team that pumps and they worked in katrina. they are onsite. we are showing them the situation and they are assessing it. we want to pump out the water to see what is going on in the tunnels and that will help us get the power back. >>reporter: the most difficult question, timetable, your best projection when new york city will return to the new york city we all remember. >>guest: is the new york city you remember. it is the new york city you remember today. because it is made up of new yorkers. >>reporter: with working subways. >>guest: well, the new york subway system...the buses have started running this evening limited and will run full service tomorrow. subways will come back in the in few days but the subways don't make new york, new york. >>reporter: i should add, some good news we are told that when the buses are up and running today and tomorrow, they are going to be free. >>shepard: a lot of questions about the power grid in lower manhattan and whether they can supply power to the stock exchange. he clearly cannot hear me. another point
through like katrina or like irene? >> every storm is different, as i said. we have their own hazards. irene was a storm that moved parallel to the coast with most of the heaviest weather to the right so there were a lot of folks very close to the center in new jersey, for example, that didn't really know that there was a lot going on. this storm instead, first of all, it's much larger than irene. it's coming directly at the coast instead of parallelling it. the effects are spanning hundreds and hundreds of miles, much more so than irene. >> ifill: this storm is hovering with lots of rain centered over one area. how many days do you expect we'll be coping with the fallout from all of that? >> well, i think that it's going to take until wednesday before conditions really significantly improve so that people can get back and start looking at what happened. tomorrow it's still going to be a bad day because the system is going to slow down once it gets towards pennsylvania. it will weaken, but it's going to take a long time for this system to wind down. >> ifill: james franklin of the nat
just a few moments ago that this is similar to what we saw during katrina. >> that's right. hard to grasp. >> homes on fire. >> and then you've got homes on fire. you saw it in new orleans with katrina. these just spontaneous explosions involving homes. and unfortunately, you've got all this water, and firefighters and first responders can't get that water -- >> yeah. to use it to put -- >> to put on the fire. it's a dangerous situation for them. and this is exactly what the mayor was trying to warn people about. don't put your first responders in danger. but this is the situation here. we're going to have much more of our continuing coverage of this superstorm. next. cross our t's and dot our i's, we still run into problems. namely, other humans. which is why, at liberty mutual insurance, auto policies come with new car replacement and accident forgiveness if you qualify. see what else comes standard at libertymutual.com. liberty mutual insurance. responsibility. what's your policy? 100% new. 100% mmm... wow, that is mmm... it's so mmm you might not believe it's a hundred calori

york city's katrina. just devastating impacts here. this historic surge, 13 feet. all of that water coming on and those high wind gusts. worst-case scenario did pan out here, unfortunately. >> all right. mark mancuso, from accuweather. thanks for joining us this morning, mark. >>> straight ahead, more of our continuing coverage of sandy. the airlines trying to get back to normalcy. and what the red cross is doing to help out. >>> plus, more incredible video from across the storm zone, including rescues that didn't have to happen. we'll be right back. new pink lemonade 5-hour energy? 5-hour energy supports the avon foundation for women breast cancer crusade. >>> welcome back, everyone. 5 million people take the new york city subways every day. and this morning, the entire system is shut down. seven subway tunnels under the east river are flooded. and the electricity that powers -- runs the system, is turned off to contain the salt water damage. getting the trains up and running again will be a massive undertaking. >> it could be anywhere between 14 hours to 4 days, just to pump the w
katrina where it was failures on the part of the federal government's response. you don't have that negative aspect. you have chris christie, the most visible republican in the country. certainly according to the media one of the better liked ones. he's out there using his platform to vouch for the leadership of the democratic president. i think that makes a powerful statement to people. i think having bloomberg weigh in makes a pretty strong statement to people as well. and i think just -- it's tough to quantify this. i think it's impossible to quantify this. to me it creates this noise that's sort of in the air, in the media air, and sort of in the conversational air in this country. it creates noise that i think takes wavering voters who maybe were soft obama supporters or soft romney supporters, i could see it moving them, you know, a small share of people, but i could see it moving people toward obama making them more comfortable with the idea of re-electing him. if it's a 1% or something, small, but it's big in the context of this election. >> in the context of endorsemen
or on your house some way so we know where you are. very reminiscent of what we saw in katrina. the good news is the vast majority of people who were told to evacuate did evacuate so you didn't have as many trapped people, as you might have expected, had they not done so. two people dead and one man who is still believed to be missing. savannah? >> katy tur in stonington, connecticut this morning. thank you. >> let's go to al roker on point pleasant beach along the jersey shore. al, what's the weather like there, first of all? >> it's still windy, matt, and we're getting bands of rain. let me show you something down philadelphia avenue. you see there's a lot of flooding, and folks walking through that standing water. do not do that. because you don't know what's in there. from a biohazard standpoint, from a debris standpoint, from live wires. there was a woman electrocuted in new york city walking through a puddle. do not do that. so -- but, again, we are talking about the remnants of sandy still hanging around for at least another 24 to 36 hour. as we take a look at the "today" map, in the n
hurricane katrina back in new orleans seven years ago. only difference is this is spread out over a much bigger area. puts the storm in perspective. everyone just stay safe. 4 take acold & cough...s [ buzz! ] ...and spend time on the chair. for non-drowsy 6-symptom cold & flu relief. take dayquil. use nyquil...

everywhere he goes to talk about it, to encourage people to help. americans, greta, as we saw from katrina, the worst natural disaster in american history, brought out the largest outpouring of philanthropy and volunteerism in american history as well. the american people are incredibly generous. they carry about their fellow citizens, so romney's right to be saying let's help, let's help the red cross, the salvation army, but also we're about to elect a president for the next four years, and there are lots of places in the country where he can be campaigning and should be campaigning. i think he's right. he's not going to go out and poke at president obama just like chris christie's not. nobody else is going to. but we got a really big election next tuesday. >> greta: it's sort of interesting. most of the damage is in new jersey and maryland and all these coastal states. they're not the swing states. it seems to me that there would maybe be a political advantage to governor romney because president obama is busy with those states. he can go out to colorado and minnesota, he can go to mich
. then remember what happened with katrina. >> bill: down in san antonio hello, kathy. >> caller: good morning, bill. thank you for giving us a sane alternative. >> bill: to you know what. yes. >> caller: i wanted to say one of the problems was -- >> bill: hey, turn your radio or tv down in the background. >> caller: sorry. >> bill: little distracting. that's it. all right. >> caller: there are problems, situations that are too vast for the states. one being -- which was one i think one of the first accomplishments of the obama administration was the development and the dissemination of the vaccine for that new virus that popped up, h1n1. it killed the group in between and that was an unbelievable accomplishment and the democrats never brag about it. >> bill: i forgot about that. but there are many, many, many roles where things -- look at our federal interstate highway system, right? look at the air traffic air-traffic controller system. there are some things -- look at the defense of our country. but it is not just
with expertise, happened in katrina for the city of new orleans and chicago in 1992. they are at this moment in the air coming here to fly and they will be here tonight to help city planners advise him how to start first and get rid of the why. robert: back to you in the city of. melissa: you see the panel -- the tunnel completely filled with water. ashley: that is critical to the transportation story here. no one can get in or out of manhattan with transportation shutdown and the roads a mess. very difficult, unable to give any timetable but essentially more damage. let's go to new jersey talking of damage and assessing what sandy did. two million customers without power. jeff flock was in point pleasant beach in the teeth of the storm yesterday and today surveying the damage. jeff: had quite a ride. take a look. plenty of water. this street was like a river last night. is covered with water as well as stand. follow me this way, you will see there is sand all over the city streets in point pleasant beach. the other problem even though they cleared ocean drive up here, natural gas leaks, wat
't iraq. it wasn't wmds. it wasn't the horror of all of that. it was katrina and being caught sleeping and feeling like they had abandoned people in new orleans. it impacted them in a deeply personal way. these -- obviously people's lives are on the line here, too, but it also -- it's a sign of leadership. >> there is no pollster in the world who can get at the feelings, the emotions, of someone, a family, who has lost power for three or four days. what does that do to this election? that kind of emotional wild card. there's no way of telling what people feel or who they get angry at. >> one thing the president benefits from, i think, because again, i don't think the white house is going to mess this up. i bet you $10,000, they've got in the tri-state area, three extraordinarily aggressive governors, two democrats, one republican. but chris christie -- >> good way of putting it. >> cuomo and malloy is going to be very aggressive and work very close with the president and the white house because they are concerned about the people, not just the politics of it, they're concerned about th
. katrina, $100 billion, again, took a long time to rebuild what. i would say is the initial impact is very, very bad, but when the federal government gets involved, waves its wand, and when the insurers pay, you tend to have a very quick rebound that can actually help, if it's huge enough, the gross domestic product of the united states. >> i want toé@ focus in on tha not to be intencenssensitive to people are dealing with, but there are serb sectors of the economy that will benefit. i would assume the construction industry, to start with one. >> yes. hurricane andrew in 1992, the construction industry boomed. the lumber industry boomed. glass. a lot of companies simply had to send everything down to florida, and that raised the praise across the board throughout the united states. highly unusual. that was pretty much the only time that i've seen the gross national product really jump off of a hurricane. this could be like that. that's how big this one might end up being. >> and very quickly, i'm sure you had heard rumors, reports that potentially the federal government would have to del
about hurricane relief. he was talking a moment ago what happened during hurricane katrina and some folks being moved from there from louisiana to massachusetts. let's listen to the governor. >> randy owen from alabama to be here. [applause] he's an extraordinary guy. he will probably tell you the story about storms, tornado actually that hit his county in alabama and described why it is that he is here. we appreciate the fact that he is agreed to come entertain and bring people in who have in turn brought in goods as their cover charge if you will to be here this morning. thank you for your help and your generosity. by the way if you have a little extra, if you have more canned goods, bring them along to our victory centers that are open. but also if you can write a check to american red cross, that is welcome as well. we're looking for all the help we can get for all the families in need. thank you for your generosity. thank you for your support. i will go to work here at the table. get things sorted and boxed up and loaded in the trucks. and for the rest of you, enjoy the concert
katrina survivor. you think about being drawn or experiencing a trip of uncertainty, moving from -- speaking about what the pastor says, moving from dome to dome and ending up in a place of where, again, uncertainty starts. one stabilizing factor for her throughout the years is that the center has been there to help her cope and develop coping strategies, physical therapy to assist her with her gait that is slowing down. speaking to the some of the issues when we think about the elderly, having enough funds just for transportation to get to and from places like the center. metro access is not affordable, if you're living off of $600 to $700 a month. if you're coming to the center, you're paying $6 a day. that's quite expensive. when you think about food insecurity, by partnering with asbury united methodist church, we're able to offer balanced, nutritious meals. for the working caregiver, we give them hope and also provide them a sense of peace of mind because they can work knowing their loved ones are in a safe, stimulating and loving place. how does this impact the community? i
happened ever since 2005. of course, katrina being the top of that list. the storm right now located over buffalo. it's going to be a slow exit over the next two days. it's still remaining with clouds and raw, cool temperatures. but the devastating weather is by far over with. just some showers out there today. the rest of the halloween forecast, by the way, for the country looks just fine. the exception being out there in the northwest. of course, we'll have more about sandy and its effects on the election coming up next, harold ford jr. stay with us here on "morning joe." where others fail, droid powers through. introducing the new droid razr maxx hd by motorola. now more than ever droid does. very sore looking kinda blistery. it was like a red rash... like somebody had set a bag of hot charcoal on my neck. i was a firefighter for 24 years. but, i have never encountered such a burning sensation until i had the shingles. i remember it well. i was in the back yard doing yard work. i had this irritation going on in my lower neck. i changed shirts because i thought there was something in th
